    I was watching the show for a couple years and I got burned out. I thought it was being dragged out. Then I saw a commercial for the show and saw something that peaked interest once again. I got hooked on the history that you guys, of “the fellowship of the dig” have exposed and made real. And I think that that’s what gets people hooked on watching and wanting to be apart of your fellowship. That history was so dry and far away that all it was was a good story. But once you bring up a artifact or the incredible historical facts that Zena has uncovered it’s become real. And I think that people almost everyone wanted to find the gold and treasures at first. But when those things came out of the ground they wanted to see that history that no one really thought was real, like the Knights Templar’s. Zena made them real. That’s what hooked me.
    It’s funny that everyone that you have came into contact with to work on finding the money pit have also gotten hooked and want to help but then the history hooked them and wanted to be a part if. When I was in high school history was so boring but now for the last 25 years I’ve been hook on the history of the wars, government, and the central banks and how they have shaped history. And now the real part history that no one knew, now it is.
    Thanks for finding the real historical artifacts and sharing them with us.
    How does it feel to be the first ones to touch one of those artifacts like the bolt after hundreds of years?

    Can’t add anything to the mystery other than review the “chests with loose metals” found at the 90-100 foot level; these might have served as counterbalance devices for a gate/pulley system that would allow access to the tunnels shown in the diagram. This type of technology is utilized in gatehouses that allow water transfers along man-made canals.

    Simple questions of logic immediately cast doubt on the overall issue of any consequential treasure remaining on this island. First, we are supposed to believe sailors and pirates, not advanced engineers, created a vast, sophisticated system of incredibly deep shafts, connecting tunnels too small to crawl through for hundreds of feet, all while somehow keeping the seawater and underground seepage likely from natural caves from flooding their work prematurely? The history is actually pretty suspect as well, given the first dig was initiated after seeing essentially ghostly lights above the site – would normal folks not have pursued the lights first to see who they belonged to? Then, the normal idea of hiding treasure is to come back later – no one ever booby trapped their own stash so even they could not retrieve it later. If any treasure was plausibly left there, it was likely found by the few who mysteriously thrived from their time on the island, and the grand tall tales might well have been fabricated to mislead, put people off the more mundane alternatives. Most of the “amazing” findings are trivial artifacts of island traffic over centuries; stuff brought up from latest shafts may well have been from the fill pushed back into the huge excavation holes dug fifty years ago. A laborforce of thousands still could not have so completely hidden anything with such elaborate security, against modern technology. Sinkholes and detritus left from three centuries of visitors explains most everything, and as soon as they throw in everything from the Grail and Ark of the Covenant to Shakespeare and Aztec fortunes, one may as well just toss in Egyptians in flying pyramids with alien GPS.

      A few years back, a tour boat guide on an excursion out of Lunenberg, NS (Mahone Bay), reviewed some of the history found in the immediate area. The comment that I took home with me was that gold had been discovered on another island in the area; one can only speculate as to how advanced a mine shaft would have been in the day.

    Following your show on TV in episode 4-12, 4-13… You had something translated from French to English. You had the word Islande (something near to that word) I am French, watched the entire series, and that word to me is closer to Cinquante followed with CINQ that you translated. So Fifty five should be the answer in my book. Hopefully that can help you, or make sense in your Quest!!!

    Oak Island has had many, many dwellers over the past thousand years. Among other things, oaks were valuable to shipbuilders. I believe Oak Island was a working port for someone for many years… likely the Templars. The stories of the Islands assests would have been well known to sailors. I believe there may be an element of truth to many of the theories. The swamp?…created for the wildlife… hey a Knight’s gotta eat. Such a remote outpost would have to fend for themselves. A swamp would provide a lot of meat, feathers and leather. Many of the “clues” may have a very simple and logical explanation if applied to life 500 years ago.

    What if it is a natural made cavern with an entrance through a hole that has been hidden or a hidden hatch. The cavern could have been flooded when they dug straight down or may have broken down and flooded over time. Yes I am hooked on watching it. Digging up or down into a cavern is a possibility.

    It bothers me that they go back to the New Ross site and once again go down the well but pretend that it hasnt been already explored 3 and half years ago on history’s channel American Unearthed and they went into a vault down there and there is a map showing they discovered another vault room below the bottom of the well in New Ross with nothing in it .Just another empty dead end where there was something there probably at one time or maybe they just dont want to show any findings because it jusg goes to the government and they lose all that money and time put in to it and probably just get a tax write off and a plaque or hide what u find with exception to something like the ark or king Solomons minor religious treasures. Kinda hard to seĺl or hide anything to significant. Still love watching, addicted i guess.Just hate the dragging out of repeated information.

    When will everyone wake up and see sense, there is no buried treasure on Oak Island, never has been, who’s going to dig a hole 200ft deep?? Pirates never buried anything more than 10ft deep, neither did the Spanish. The first 60 years of the Money Pit is just a story handed down, there were no records of what went on. Opportunists cashed in – ‘Look there’s a hole there, must be treasure down there, more money please!’ WHY HAS NOTHING EVER BEEN FOUND?? Read the new book ‘Anson’s Gold’ by George Edmunds. You will also find the Freemasons may have had something to do with it!!

    Great show and great quest! Like you two , I read the same Readers Digest back in High School. Been intrigued ever since..Actually met the the family just before they moved out
    to Oak Island. They were finishing up at the PNE here in Vancouver.with their “Ride Of Death” I think it was.

    The 37 Responses below me had some good points.

    I have a few.First, I don’t believe there ever was a treasure in the money pit

    The so called Treasure must have been buried in the 1600’s Who would do that and how was it done? Why bury so deep and then booby trap it? and finally…How were THEY going to get it out?

    I would say that the Treasure is buried in vaults underground and above the Tide Level.
    You just haven’t found it yet.Wait a minute…You did find a man made wall when you bought those machines…what about that?

    Thank you

    Good Luck

    The facts:1) Multiple artifacts have been found and catalogued that are foreign to Oak Island.
    2) Major construction similar to the building of the pyramids has taken place in the past. Considerable intelligence went into the construction of these tunnels/shafts.
    3) If the translation on the 90 foot stone exists and is to be believed, then 90 + 40 = 130 feet. There was no treasure of the magnitude found at this level that would justify such extensive commitment to labour and time. NOTE: the stone does not refer to treasure, just weight.
    The construction of these tunnels and floodways would command a legion of men, camped for an extended period of time on the Island. The location of their camp might add another clue in solving the mystery of Oak Island. There would have to be metal artifacts remaining from their camps – metal cups, plates, forks, etc
    The nagging questions I have: Who decided to use Oak Island? One individual, or a group of people? Were these people related religiously, from the same country? Why Oak Island, or any Island this far north; one would be fighting cold weather, mosquitoes, black flies and the cold waters of the Atlantic.Any Caribbean Island would be more suitable. Why bury a stone 90 feet into the dirt with a misleading inscription?
    Why bury so much treasure in one place? Better to spread it around to different locations in case some is found.
    Finally, with the technology we have today – horizontal drilling (ie “fracking”), deep sea drilling and photography equipment, it should be relatively inexpensive to send a camera down these shafts and photograph the chambers in high definition.
    Regardless, good luck to those working the money pit, et al, currently and in the future. My only wish is that I am still alive to see the puzzle finally solved.

      You already know other entrances {maybe closures} on other sites on the island. I feel the “Money Pit” is a tease. Find signs it was here but gone now. Done? Too much thought and planing went into this. Back then and now. Only three answers. : 1.- All just a TV reality money thing. 2.- There are treasures that human kind aren’t ready to deal with in the least places they would look. To find it assures death except to the righteous. 3.- The treasures will only be released when Jesus walks again on this Earth with HIS children. Only the Righteous will receive His Love.

    I just watched the 12/15/15 show titled “carved in stone” and found the discussion of the Aztec Empire and their quest for blue clay. I live in NC now but I am originally from Ga. In 2007, I traveled to the Atlantic Canada Section of the American Water Works Association for a meeting in St Johns, Newfound Land while serving as President of AWWA, 2006/2007. My wife and I drove there from NC and on our way back we visited the Gros Morne National Park.I remember seeing a geological map there that showed the geology from Georgia in the US to New Foundland was all essentially the same. The comment about blue clay at Oak Island and Georgia on this week’s show made me think about that map. Maybe there is an Aztec connection after all?

      i agree also, metal detecting would be a very good idea to find evidence that other people have had a presence on the island other than excavating 200ft holes for treasure, i do believe something happened as no smoke without fire but chests 200ft below ground, even the ark? 100’s of years ago with the water line so low am not so sure if this was possible unless the land or sea levels were different and have changed since, dont think my xlt will pick up much on the island but would love to try would make a nice change from castles in aberdeen scotland

    What really bothers me is – it’s not like there are not quite a few rich Canadians. How come all of the treasure hunters for about the past 100 years are Americans ?

    Speaking of, there’s a guy who emigrated north at young age and became a Canadian who’s written 3 books about the Knights Templar in North America, beginning with Nova Scotia in the late 1300s, Michael Bradley, that are never mentioned by anybody, but are very much at the centre of research sources these American treasure hunters today utilized to get started.

    Just recently that American guy who claims to be a forensic geologist but never got any degree, honourary or otherwise, Scott Wolter, America Unearthed, did two episodes about the Templars in North America story, claiming ‘MY theory this’ and ‘MY theory that’ but because I’ve read all three of Bradley’s books, I know exactly where he and his episode researchers got most of their info for the episodes from – Bradley’s books.
